Blackrock Diving Tower getting a facelift

Galway’s famed Blackrock Diving Tower is set to get a facelift with a new coat of paint after many years.

City Councillor Clodagh Higgins says that a contractor has been appointed by the council to paint Blackrock, which has seen its facade start to flake after years exposed to the elements.

Blackrock has been “looking shoddy” in recent times, the Fine Gael Cllr said, and that a “splash of paint” will make all the difference in restoring it to its proper condition.

“The fact we are in summertime and lockdown has been lifted means more and more people are in the vicinity, swimming in Galway bay and it is only right and proper that it is in the best condition possible”.

“The Blackrock Diving Tower is one of the most photographed landmarks in Galway and as a proud resident of Salthill I feel it is crucial that it is maintained appropriately.”

“I am delighted to see the diving tower will be restored to its former glory and a huge thanks to Galway City Council for investing in Salthill at a time when there are so many demands on resources.”
